I love the soundtrack for Risk of Rain. So much so that Youtube will randomly throw “Dew Point” into the queue for me when I’m shuffling through random video game songs.
I also have played… maybe an hour, of Risk of Rain? I don’t dislike the game, but I never quite latched onto anything in it besides its songs. I think I have listened to Dew Point for more collective minutes than I have spent actually playing the game.
And this makes me curious—are there any soundtracks you love for games you haven’t played? Don’t enjoy playing? Actively dislike? Were there any games you’ve played because you found the soundtrack first and thought “damn, now I have to see this live”? Or do you only engage with soundtracks for games you enjoy on some level?
